assume you a -- >> i assume you agree with everything bob just said? [laughter] >> and bob is right that you have to sort through these issues, and i think he has come to exactly the wrong bottom line. on the cliff itself, this is an extreme danger to the economy. everybody has their own numbers. you put together the tax increases and spending cuts, and it is something like $640 billion in our calculation. it is something like 4% of gdp. we are looking at 1.5% at best. and you do not have to be a genius to figure of the consequences. we have a recession, and probably more severe one than the cbo said. and it is not just in january. it is already happening now. new york is already seen the implications of the eminent fiscal cliff affecting the economy we have seen a lot of anecdotal reports of businesses looking out the weaker economy and scaling back their plans. the defense contractors must send out notices so employees will be laid off. if you are a dividend investor and you are looking at, tax breaks january 1, you are broglie's starting to worry about the market. this is not som
of american decline. bob famously wrote here, and those of you in the first three rows can read this. those of you in the back -- i will read it for you. bob actually said in an interview, "the united states both economically and mill tarle and also in terms of its overall influence is really is as strong as its ever been." he said this on february 21, 2012. do you agree with the assertion that right now or in 2012 the united states is as strong as it has ever been? >> it depends, david, if you are speaking about strong relative to whom. i think it is true we are still the most emulated in the world. but it is possible to be the world's cleanest dirty shirt. so i sort of america as going back to -- i have to answer this in a little bit of detail. in terms of, one of the things that made us strong to start with, and i would argue, that we actually had a formula for success in this country. one, we educate our people up to and beyond what the technology was, so they can get the most out of it. whether it was universal secondary education, and then it was universal post secondary education. se
-- talk based on a paper i have done with judge robert bork, a one to a knowledge mary ellen and bob jr. in the audience. this presentation and the paper it is based upon which i think will be available today if it is not already available on the web site and also on the criterion website, was commissioned by google but the views that are expressed in the conclusion that are reached in the paper are solely those of the judge and myself. the title of the paper presents this question of the chicago school perspective on questions of search and google. i thought before we die into issues -- dive into issues, we would have some antitrust analysis. i associate to kabul school with -- and so should the school with -- in taking a degree of their, discovered economics. and of course by the late 70's, the writings of the school started influencing the supreme court agreed deal. -- a great deal. i think some of the distinguishing characteristics of the chicago school of antitrust analysis with horizontal conspiracy cartels, it has a very hard-line attitude. cartels are serious source of injury to

and senator bob kerrey. >> i love nebraska. i was born here in lincoln. i went to lincoln northeast high school. i left nebraska, went to war and came home. i recovered from my injuries here in lincoln. i started a business that today employs more than 700 people. i have served you as your governor. we balanced the budget and the economy recovered. i served as a senator, and again we balanced the budget and our economy recovered. when i left officer we were paying off our public debt. i am a candidate for congress or the senate because congress needs to change, and i will fate to make that change happen. i never have and i never will be a cookie cutter politician. i never have and i never will be anything other than someone who loves nebraska and will always do what is best for our state and our nation. >> thank you, senator. now that the candidates have made their opening statements, it is time for questions from our panel of journalists. we begin with fred with a question for senator kerrey. >> you are running to be not just a senator from nebraska, but a u.s. senator. if elected, how

. bob schieffer of cbs news as well as candy crowley. there are stories in the paper looking at what the candidates seem to do -- aim to do. lawrence is joining us from michigan on the democratic line. will you be watching tomorrow night? are you with us? let's go on to bill in edgewater, florida, independent. caller: good morning. i will definitely be watching. i was brought up in the republican household. but i have been paying attention to the debates and seeing a lot of shows on what the issues aren't. -- are. i don't have the confidence after the republican convention that they have a plan, because they have been avoiding giving any specifics. so i really want to hear if republicans really have something to say. other than that, i really moved to an independent position. i am willing to vote for somebody who comes up with a good plan. host: what will you listen for in particular tomorrow night, bill? the economy, health care, what issues are important to you? caller: i thinik i want more honesty from the republicans instead of evasiveness. i feel they have been dodging questions
is for bob menendez. >> you say you support a comprehensive solution including revenues and cuts in spending. can you name one wasteful program. to successfully eliminated while you have been in congress? >> the f 22. this is something that even the pentagon did not want. the administration did not want. there are those who are advocating for it. i voted against the f22. i voted on a different alternative fighter engine that was not necessary as well. that was cut. those are 2 examples of programs that were cut. what i do not want to do is what my opponent says -- he basically embraces the lion budget. what does that budget to do? it ends medicare as we know it. makes it a voucher. privatizes social security. dramatically cut assistance to education in our country. as someone who grew up, the first of my country to go to program, i want loans to be out there and keeping student loan interest rates low so that everyone can achieve an education. it is very important to do this and a balanced way. >> one i am there we are going to have a joe kyrillos -- i will work on end compromise along the w
governor here today, but he is down in florida campaigning for me, so thanks for bob mcdonnell. you may know a couple nights ago we had a debate. you may have got the chance to see that. it was a good experience for me, for the president, for people to watch. it was a debate of substance. we talked about issues. i asked the president some questions that people across the country would want to ask the president, such as why it was when america was needing jobs so badly he was pushing for "obamacare"? i got to ask him why there are still 23 million americans out of work or struggling to find full-time jobs. i got the chance to ask him, why is the middle class buried in this country? the price of everything you buy is going up. people in the middle class have been buried. i got the chance to talk about and an ask him why he is cutting $716 billion from medicare. also got to point out he is in favor of a tax plan that will kill 700,000 jobs. he had a chance to answer those questions, or not answer them, as the case may be. more important was the chance to talk about where we are going in th
. this administration does not. on the bob jones case, they came in on the side of discrimination against women, the handicapped, and the elderly. in the congress we just passed overwhelmingly the civil rights bill of 1984. the senate killed it in the last week or two in congress. there is a real difference between how the mondale administration will address of our rights and the failure of this administration, particularly in that area. >> what steps do you think government can take to expand representation of minorities and women in the workforce, colleges, and universities? >> i do not support the use of quotas, we feel very strongly about affirmative action to correct inequities. we believe steps should be taken. that is both through government and small business administration. we have supported minorities and women's business. that is a positive thing. we do not feel you are in any way hurting anyone else by reaching out with affirmative action to help those who have been disenfranchised. if you have a growing economy, if you create the jobs, if you allow for small business the opportunit
of you in the very back, it will appear something like an eye test. bob wrote or said -- he said the son of january 21st, 2012, if you want and point at least that statement. tom, do you agree with the assertion that right now or in 2000 call the united states is as strong as we have ever been? >> it depends if you're speaking about strong relative to what and to home. -- to whom. and in what area. there's no question in terms of influence on the global -- global stage. where the country that is still most emulated in the world. as mohamed el-erian said, it is possible to be the world's cleanest dirty shirt. i have to answer this question a little bit in the till. in terms of the things that have made the strongest berkley, i would argue that we have a formula for success in this country and it was built on five pillars. educator people up to and beyond the technology. when was the cotton gin, universal primary education. the factories brought universal secondary. and the laptop brought in post- secondary. secondly, we have the world's best infrastructure. third, we have the world's most
a single payer, a government takeover. what i want, bob, is i want a health care system that's affordable and accessible. number one, let's base it on quality. number two, let's allow individuals to purchase health insurance over the internet and be able to put in what they want in there. number three, let's do away with the liability problems so doctors have got to practice, you know, defensive medicine. let's make sure 18% of the cost of health care which goes in the paper requires insurance companies to have only one form in medicare, save money. 1% of the population uses 20% of the cost. let's make sure they're taken care of and be able to have managed care. we could change this and make health care affordable and accessible and obama doesn't do that. >> representative baldwin? >> the last thing we need moving forward is have tommy thompson and others rip up the affordable care act, throw it out and have more years of partisan bickering over this. it is high time we pull together across the party aisle and put this in full effect and make it work for america and wisconsinites. the eff
be the case with bob dole or john mccain or bill clinton, people that have been an office for a long time, either as senator or governorships. one had a sense of the strengths and weaknesses. the other question is the campaign, what have we learned from the campaigns? i will think about that for a minute. that is an interesting question. there is no obvious thing that leaps out. look at the way but romney has run the campaign, therefore he will be this kind of president. t. iran is min it is not the path to really make serious arguments and really educate the public. mitt romney has said this himself. it is of anything for a can of it. it is a funny thing for a candidate to say that that is what he thinks of campaigning. you could be a very serious president as george h. w. bush was, but politics is another kind of world. i hired these guys to help me get over the finish line and forget about the seriousness. i do think it is -- it does mean you cannot learn much about how he will govern from the campaign. and president obama's case, he has been in campaign mode now for months. clearly hi
what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are women's reproductive rights even being called up? are they aware that in this century, at this late date -- why are we going back and rehashing this? an issue that has been dealt with and should not even be on the table? also, i would want to know possibly, and i will vote for the president, and from him i would want to know why -- i thought that his calling when he came to office was to get on top of wall street, get on top of that problem with the big banks, with all the crazy financing that even some of the experts cannot understand. again, i will vote for him, maybe he will do this in the next term, deal with the big banks and the issues surrounding why they have not been regulated or clamped down on in a meaningful way so that we can go forward. if we are going to talk about certainty, we need to know that the banks will not be falling back into the abyss that they got us into before. host: richard, republican line, hello. caller:
what the tax code is. >> thank you. our next speaker -- speaker will be bob greenstein. >> there are two risks here. the obvious risk to the economy in the short term -- if we go over the fiscal cliff and the aggregate demand comes out of the economy that we will have a relatively mild recession in the first part of 2013 and we would be back and recovery by the second half of 2013. it would be a recession on top of where we are and that is not good. the bigger risk is the rest to the economy in the long term if we keep kicking the can down the road. how do we think about this? there's an interesting report that came out several months ago from the carlyle group. i want to briefly read what it includes. it says there will be a grand bargain that replaces the fiscal cliff with an alternative. should a negotiated settlement on long-term deficits failed to materialize during a lame-duck session, the best alternative might be a simple extension of current fiscal policy. such an extension would include the near term prospects and would relieve the pressure to agree to a credi

in the senate. [applause] >> your leader in the senate bob dole said that a better qualified person could have been chosen. other republicans have been far more critical in private. why do you think that you have not made a more substantial impression on some of these people who have been able to observe you up close? >> the question goes to whether i am qualified to be vice president, and in the case of a tragedy, whether i'm qualified to be president. qualifications for the office of vice president or president are not age alone. you must look at accomplishments, and you must look at experience. i have more experience than others that have sought the office of vice president. now let's look at qualifications, and let's look at the three biggest issues that are going to be confronting america in the next presidency. those three issues are national security and arms control; jobs and education; and the federal budget deficit. on each one of those issues i have more experience than does the governor of massachusetts. in national security and arms control, you have to understand the difference b
're seeing the impact on our data. host: bob, welcome to the conversation. caller: thank you very much. i happen to be one of those snow angels that the other lady -- host: is very happy about. [laughter] caller: i lived through the depression, so you can imagine how all i am. i wanted to comment on this recession that we're going through. it started 60 years ago when a new england lost its leather industry. that is a terrible blow to this country, we hope it doesn't continue. then 40 years ago, it lost its apparel industry trade in large plant -- i met a gentleman who worked for a plant in south america, and i asked him what he did, and he took care of all the machinery. "we have 12 plants in south america --" host: i have to jump in, because we are just about out of time. exporting jobs in the earlier part of the 20th-century -- what was behind that? there was not a nafta agreement. guest: but it still had to do with the changing global economy. for the u.s., it made more sense, purely economically, to buy it cheaper from a lower- cost country. look at what happened in the uk. they were

in the second of four of their television debates. that will be followed at 8:00 by deb fisher debating bob kerrey is for the open seat in nebraska. on c-span2, eric cantor squares off against wayne hall. -- wayne powell. >> every generation through our history has worked and sacrificed to leave a better country to their children, grandchildren and future generations. we were than spending their money. we are now even much more spending their money and we're leaving them a message that will be very difficult to deal with and if we're that week, just think of who wants to come here first and take us over? the last thing i ever want to see is our country taken over because we are so financially weak we can't do anything and we're moving in that direction. we're on the edge of a cliff and we have to start fixing it now, otherwise we are leaving a disaster for our children and grandchildren and we could even lose our country. >> ross perot, interviewed on the u.s. economy. you can find the article in today's edition of "usa today." that's tonight on c-span at 9:00 eastern. >> supreme court just

, there were perennial discussions about campaign finance. bob dole was the republican leader. he was interested in making sure the republicans got a good deal or at least they did not get a bad deal. he was not opposed to campaign finance reform or legislation. in today's world where mitch mcconnell is the senate leader, he has spent years opposing legislation in this area, and trying to shut down regulation we have. that is largely because of senator mcconnell that we have an sec that is deadlocked to this degree and unable to take any action because it takes four votes. there's a two-thirds requirement for the sec to do anything, so we should not be surprised that they don't. having said that, and i think it really is a change, i still hold out hope that after the election and the new congress that they will at least take a look at the disclosure side. the report was crystal clear in citizens united. eight-one, saying disclosure of all of this spending, issue ads as well as election ads, wereaign ads, candidate adds unconstitutional. it is a necessary thing. citizen should know
extremely strong civil rights records. this administration does not. it has come in, in the bob jones ' case, on the side of segregated academies. it came in on the side of discrimination against women, the handicapped, and the elderly. as a matter of fact, in the congress we just passed overwhelmingly the civil rights bill of 1984 in this republican-controlled senate killed it in the last week or two in congress. so there is a real difference how the mondale-ferraro will address the issue of civil rights, particularly in that area. >> in the area of affirmative action, what steps do you think government can take to increase the representation of women and minorities in the work force and in colleges and universities? specifically would you support the use of quotas to achie those goals? >> i do not support the use of quotas. mr. mondale and i feel strongly that affirmative action to correct inequities. we believe steps should be taken both through government and, for instance, the small business administration. we have supported set-asides for minorities and women-owned businesses. that's a
must know that there's something to the argument of your fellow democrat bob strauss that some strain on security growth is needed or to tax social secure benefits as regular income. you spoke for a six-month delay on cost of milk -- cost-of- living increases. are you and gov. dukakis using this issue politically rather than dealing with it responsibly? >> social security is an issue where senator quayle voted eight times. they tried to cut the benefits for 62-year of retirees by 40%. they tried to do and and run on socials record when they first came in after promising not to cut it, -- on social security when they first came in after promising not to cut it. at that point, they tried a $40 billion and run to cut social security. the record is clear. we saw was president bush fly back from the west coast to break a tie in the united states senate. he does not get to vote her often in the senate, but he made a special trip to come back and vote against a cost-of-living increase. when you talk about social security, the people who will protect it are the democrats that brought forth th

. on the international financial crises that come up, my friend, bob rubin, the former secretary of treasury is here, he's a close advisor to me and great friend in all respects. i have had a chance to work with him and alan greenspan and others on the crisis following the collapse of the mexican peso. when the asian financial crisis raised the risk of world-wide recession that could affect our economy, and now, of course, the euro's value has been dropping, but seems to be under control. but it started for me in the last eight years when i had the honor of casting the tie- breaking vote to end the old economic plan here at home and put into place a new economic plan that has helped us to make some progress, 22 million new jobs, the greatest prosperity ever. but it's not good enough. my attitude is you ain't seen nothing yet. we need to do more and better. >> so, governor, would you agree there is no basic difference here on intervening -- on federal government intervening in what might be seen by others to be a private financial crisis? >> no, there's no difference on that. there is a difference, thoug

on the debate on twitter. tonight we are putting questions to republican deb fisher and democrat bob kerrey. the next two questions will come from the candidates themselves. they will each ask one question of the other. we will begin with senator fisher asking senator kerrey a question. >> mr. kerrey, you talk about cutting spending. you talk about but partisanship. -- bipartisanship. yet when you were in the united states senate, when the welfare reform bill came up, you fought against it. that was a bipartisan bill. it was put forward by president clinton. i liked the ball, the people -- i like the bill, the people from nebraska liked the ball. -- the bill. senator kerrey and joe biden voted for the bill. that was an important piece of legislation. can you explain to us why did you vote against cutting spending? why did you vote against requiring people to work for their welfare check? and why did you vote against that landmark piece of legislation? >> you have 90 seconds. >> first of all, that is several questions. i did not vote against cutting spending. we supported the george bush bud
